    I know what you mean, I'd been looking for a Ruger SP 101 for a while, they were as scarce as hen's teeth around here! I finally found one, ordered and within a week had it in at my local FFL. Exclusively, I've carred semiautos and frankly after going over the SP, I'm sorry I waited so long to get a revolver. I got the email from Simply Rugged that my holster should be here Monday, so I'm anxious to see how the SP feels being carried.

    Dont' know what it is, but I don't feel at all hesitant about ONLY carrying 5 rounds of .357 magnum (with a couple of speed strips)!

    Here's my EDC.

    Current-production Charter Arms Bulldog 2.5 stainless. I've installed vintage wood grips from a Police Undercover, done some minor dehorning, and used Flitz polish to change the beadblast finish on the cylinder to a smooth satin appearance. This is an awesome little gun that balances very well and feels great in the hand. I just carry it in a simple Gould & Goodrich belt slide. It's perfect for the light, 21-ounce revolver.

    I really like carrying this small gun that shoots BIG FAT .44s.

    I'm not a revolver guy, but the OP's guns are downright gorgeous, just what you would expect a very dapper, old school detective to carry

    Those both are beautiful guns but that 66 just floats my boat.

    The last firearm I would purchase right now is a revolver. I love them, but with the AWB on the horizon every dollar goes to firearms on the wish list that will no longer be available, or in limited magazine capacity. I predict that revolvers will soon make a big comeback after the looming AWB. It sucks because I still want a Python and a few more Smiths.

    I love my Chiappa Rhino more than I've ever loved a woman. Funky, sure. But still a wheelgun.

    The revolver guys are the only ones that can get ammo right now. Most of the semi-auto stuff is missing in action.

    They are gorgeous OP. Congratulations.

    I love revolvers here are my two favorites:






    But for self/home defense I like a SA pistol with 15 +1 rds.



    Thugs travel in packs, most home invasions are by 2-3 bad guys. You need more than the 5-10 rds Joe Biden is suggesting.

    Write your reps, tell them to oppose any new gun laws and please join the NRA asap. It costs $35.00 the price of a box of ammo (if it were available).
